Chanelle Hayes showcased her impressive eight stone weight loss during a day at the beach in sun-soaked Spain on Friday – after undergoing a gastric sleeve operation last November.

The former Big Brother contestant, 34, wowed onlookers as she put her slimmed-down figure on display in a similar neon pink bikini to one she sported back in 2018, while flashing her ample assets and bronzed legs.

Before undergoing her surgery, the star revealed she took laxatives for 10 years and would only eat a tin of tomatoes in a bid to look ‘skinny like Victoria Beckham’ during her battle with yo-yo dieting.

In subsequent years, she found her weight creep up to 17stone 4lbs at her heaviest, after bingeing on Domino’s pizza, doughnuts and Coca Cola.

In an interview with The Sun, the mother-of-two has shared how gastric sleeve surgery helped her curb her compulsive eating habits and develop a healthy relationship with food.

Reflecting on how fame exasperated her desire to be ‘skinny’, Chanelle recalled: ‘My life post Big Brother, my eating habits got worse, everyone I hung out with in London was even smaller than me, so I felt so big…

‘They all took drugs, which I guess explains why they were thin, but that was not something I was into. I was living in hotels and would not eat anything all day, if I got absolutely starving I would eat a tin of tomatoes with hot sauce, then take laxatives…

‘I thought I was setting myself up for this amazing life but in truth I was always on my own and it was so lonely.’

At 8.5 stone, Chanelle moved up north to Wakefield to live near family but found she had begun to binge on food when she fell pregnant with son Blakely, now 11.

The television personality found herself in a vicious cycle of overindulging on takeaways, feeling guilty and then trying to compensate for her actions by taking laxatives and over-exercising.

The influencer admitted while she would love to remove her 34F breast implant and ‘doesn’t love her loose skin’, she is trying to ’embrace her body’.

Chanelle said the surgery was a last resort and she had it because ‘I was an addict and felt powerless’, and that having it can ‘save your life’.
